Oracle Bones

Peter Hessler

I read the first three chapters on my excercise bike at the gym tonight. Hessler has a real gift, call it easy on the eyes. I was actually in the mood to read a novel this week, but the one I had in mind didn’t fall into grasp quite so readily, and Oracle Bones was staring at me, inducing guilt from my bedside table, as it has been for weeks. (I’d received a review copy and put off starting into it when I learned someone was already doing the review for the Times.)
It promises to be a quick read, and I can already suggest it heartily. Rich, insightful, different from the run of the mill, and deilghtfully readable.
